Sister Carol Sellman Receives Top Honor at Holy Names High School

Holy Names High School in Oakland, Calif. has bestowed its highest honor, the Blessed Marie Rose Durocher Award, on Carol Sellman, SNJM, who has served on its board for more than a decade.

School leaders cited Sister Carol’s ability to provide leadership and continuity for students, faculty and the school community, especially during times of transition. At present, she serves on the Development & Enrollment Committee and the Executive Committee, in addition to her work on the board of directors. She has cultivated relationships with donors and has supported the important relationship between HNHS and Holy Names University, where she serves as Vice President of Mission Integration.

At the high school’s Fund Her Future Gala Dinner on Oct. 28, audience members applauded as Sister Carol was praised for being a strong and inclusive leader who embodies the Durocher Award criteria of "outstanding leadership and service, and unselfish support to HNHS."

Candidates for the Blessed Marie Rose Durocher Award are nominated confidentially by faculty, staff, Sisters, board members and past awardees, and award decisions are made by committee. The award is not presented every year.
